Hello! My name is Jukipa Kotierk. I am Inuk, and from Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada. I have recently graduated from my studies at Trent University with a BAH in Indigenous Studies and a minor in Psychology, located in Peterborough, Ontario. I am looking forward to interacting, engaging, and meeting with folks from all over the world on this upcoming expedition! I have alway enjoyed the environmental sciences and marine life and would like to pursue further education in these fields as a way to look out for my homelands. Currently I am also working towards my goal of becoming a social worker, and will be applying to schools in the future after my year away from studies. I am very excited and fortunate to be taking part in this years SOI expedition.
